Tom Hardy, Takashi Miike Team On “Outsider”

Tom Hardy has joined the independently financed English-language Yakuza drama “The Outsider” at Linson Entertainment and Silver Pictures.

Andrew Baldwin penned the script which is set in post-WWII Japan and follows an American expatriate who becomes a Yakuza enforcer.

Takashi Miike is in negotiations to direct, while John Linson, Art Linson, Joel Silver, Andrew Rona and Steve Richards will produce. Shooting kicks off in Japan early next year.
